This was on the back of the book from David Platt, and there really is no better way to describe this excellent book:

"FAITHFUL PREACHING balances the theological acumen on a professor, the practical advice of a pastor, and the personal warmth of a man in love with God and His Word."

Helpful primer for pastors or those preparing for pastoral ministry. Tony Merida has been greatly influenced by Jim Shaddix. Merida uses the same exegetical and homiletical methods as Shaddix. Very helpful for me as a young preacher.

Good intro into the basic tenets of preaching. Merida places special emphasis upon the lifestyle of the preacher and the Spirit's role in preaching.
